I’ve heard people say, “this isn’t what our country is about.” Finally, the image of a Nazi flag in Charlottesville was enough to bring us out of our stupor, or our denial. Of course, my friends who are people of color are quick to point out that this is EXACTLY what our country was founded on. Our country was founded on genocide and supported by slavery -- and the bible was used to justify every step.
This is the sin of white supremacy.
This is the sin of racism.
And our country must repent.
